From the Publisher
Never in human history has the responsibility for personal transformation been more important. We stand at a crucial crossroads in human history, and never have the choices before us been more clear. As individuals, we can leave the determination of our common fate to regressive fundamentalist regimes (internal and external), or we can reject such fear-based thinking in favor of a compassionate, more integral future. We must evolve beyond our every limitation, transcend our fears, and seize responsibility for re-creating ourselves, our nation, and our world. In this book, readers will find just such an integral approach to personal transformation, one that explains the importance of regular contemplative practice, and provides a wealth of information for future study.
From the Author
From an interview published in the March 2004 edition of The New Age Journal:
"...every time someone tries to concretize the concept of "God," they're basically putting God in a box. Everything they understand God to be is in that box, and anything outside the box can't be God. To a mystic, that kind of thinking is not only flawed, its dangerous -- and its what's at the core of why our nation and our race is in so much trouble."
"God is everything. All of it. God is the noun, and the verb. The being, and becoming. God is the process of evolution, and that which is evolving. God is the inherent contradiction -- and as such, God speaks to us most clearly in paradox."
"[7 is] about personal transformation. Encoded in every set of seven things or events or steps you can think of is a path of transformation. To see it, you have to know symbolic analysis and be fluent with symbolic sight. In everything from the 7 colors of the rainbow to the 7 chakras or 7 Sacraments -- it's there."
"... no one has to live in bondage to their own fears. That it's possible to embrace all the joy, love, wealth, and contenment imaginable. That there is an ultimate purpose to our lives here. That the compulsion we feel to achieve, to strive, to gain the pinnacle of success in our endeavors is a mirror of a deeper drive, a higher compulsion -- and that we all need to honor that. It's the best way I know of to get our race out of the difficulties we're now experiencing."
